Nagpur NGO – Zero Gravity – founded by late Dr Shrikant Jichkar, recently celebrated its 10th anniversary ‘Project Happiness’ at Sandipani School in Nagpur.
The event was headed and managed by Yajnavalkya and Maitreyi Jichkar, (son and daughter of late Dr Shrikant Jichkar resp), and 500 other volunteers of the NGO. Around 1000 children from multiple shelter homes across the city had a fun time at ‘Project Happiness.’ The NGO primarily focuses on spreading happiness among the underprivileged, differently-abled and orphans.
Enthusiastic children present were all smiles as they participated in various games – Reindeer Ring Toss, Happy Feet Face, Basket Ball. Not just games, but the volunteers also ensured children enjoy lip-smacking delicacies.
When Nation Next spoke to Yajnavalkya, he said, “We feel extremely happy and proud that the purpose of our event was fulfilled as we could see the happiness on the faces of children from multiple shelter homes. In future, we’re planning to expand it across the country.”
